Raise a Pint of Something
« on: October 12, 2010, 02:44:27 PM »
Looks like they're getting out of the ground today and tomorrow.

Who wants to be the last one in the hole?

From what I've heard, it's more like "who doesn't want to be the last one in the hole".  I think they'd all like to make sure everyone else gets out first.  Shouldn't be long now, but it's supposed to take up to 48 hours to get all of them out.  I can only imagine . . .

Awesome that they are all still alive but the smell must be ta awful.

Bet they cant wait to get out and take a long hot shower, hug their families and then have a big plate of Chilean sea bass.

they said that it takes 20m for the capsule to decend but 40m to accend.. that times 34 ( a Dr went down to give them a once-over and see who needs to go first) they also showed somewhere what their 1st meal out of the ground would be... didn't look to much solid food, not very appetizing either.

Hopefully they'll all be out by the time I get home. Then a multitude of pints will be raised (regardless).

Actually it'll probably be well into tomorrow by the time they are all out.

 My very thought...Mrs. Tubercle and I were discussing this last night as we were watching the news. Poor bastard.

 I can't believe they are all alive after this though. Raising a pint and wising them well.

 Going to raise "2" pints for poor bastard.

I guess the first guy is about to come up. His daughter is standing by the tube waiting. Ill bet that ride up is a long 20 mins.

Ever been down in a mine, yikes, I wouldn't want to spend one night down there. Were they without lights for a while?

For 69 days. And how long before we knew they were even alive?

I had heard that the 1st one out would be strongest and most physically fit, to make sure the the tube and capsule
were in working order and to be able to react to any unforeseen need. Either way, Cheers to them!

It was 17 days before they knew they were alive, surviving on 2 days worth of rations.  It's not some cramped space down there though, they had a lot of room.  One of them was running 5 miles a day.  3 rescuers are in, 3 miners are out.  Amazing. :)

Hope all goes as planned.

Evidently they've all "sworn a vow of silence" concerning what happened down there. God only knows they could have been eating each other before they were discovered.

I'm finishing up that first pint! Woohoo get'em all out!

What happens in the hole, stays in the hole.

Glad to hear some good news about these stories for a change.
